Chadwick Boseman recently made history by bagging four nominations posthumously at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards for his Netflix movies.
The actor, who passed away in April last year after four years of battling colon cancer, was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Blood”, and Best Actor for “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”.
At the same time, the two movies also scored Best Ensemble, which meant that Boseman has been nominated in four categories in total.

Boseman will be up against Leslie Odom Jr. (“One Night in Miami”), Daniel Kaluuya (“Judas and the Black Messiah”), Sacha Baron Cohen (“The Trial of the Chicago 7”), and Jared Leto (“The Little Things”) in the Best Supporting Actor category, while in Best Actor, he will face tough competition from the likes of Anthony Hopkins (“The Father”), Steven Yeun (“Minari”), Riz Ahmed (“The Sound of Metal”), and Gary Oldman (“Mank”).
Prior to this, Boseman had won a SAG award for Best Ensemble in 2019 for the superhero movie, “Black Panther”.
Boseman was previously revealed to have been nominated in the Best Actor category at the 2021 Golden Globes for his role in “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom”.
